This is my first trip home in nearly four years. I haven’t been back for a very good reason—and his name is Hunter Beckett. My parents need my help over Christmas break, so I’ve agreed to return during the semester break against my better judgment. Kisses under the mistletoe. Family pictures in front of the numerous decorations. Christmas in Cringle Cove is a magical time for everyone else who visits—just not for me. Four long years away without a single glance backward. I’m THISCLOSE to college graduation. One week around the chocolate-with-flecks-of-gold-eyed devil and I’m THISCLOSE to giving in to him all over again. Hunter should come with a warning label: MISTLETOE NOT REQUIRED.
Abby After my sister and I lost our parents, life has been up in the air. The only thing we’ve been able to hold onto is our pact to spend every Christmas together, avoiding it like the plague.

Until our easy friendship turns into a hellacious crush and a favor bred from nightmares. For the first time ever, I’d kill for a Christmas miracle. Dex For someone who loves everything about the holidays, mine are sure getting off to a terrible start. The worst part? I promised my ex I wouldn’t tell a soul we’d ended things until we’re far away from Cringle Cove. At least I’m in the most festive town in the country. If everything else goes to hell this week, I’ve got that. I’m hiding out in a coffee shop when I see Abby. She’s awkward, sarcastic, and obviously miserable here. I’ve never wanted anyone more. Keep a promise to your ex in exchange for a happy holiday? What the elf was I thinking?

Camryn He made a promise. He gave me a ring. Then after planning the perfect future, he made a choice…to kick me out of his life. Except, he never bothered to tell me. I hate that I’ve spent the past five years comparing men to the one who shredded my heart. I hate that he still has such a tight hold on me from across the Atlantic freaking Ocean. And most of all, I hate that I’m still in love with him. Jack Five years ago, I got on a plane. It was the biggest mistake of my life. I traded my dreams to escape my dark past.

Shaine It’s Christmas in Cringle Cove. Somebody save me. This place makes me crazy with all the decorations. But one thing makes being here even worse: my ex-boyfriend.

One, in particular, brings tears to my eyes—the day I ended us. He’s all I think about. All I see. And he wants me back. However, returning to Max means choosing a road I never thought I’d take again. Maxton I always know when Shaine’s home on break from college.

Another winter means Christmas in Cringle Cove, the cozy resort town nestled in the mountains of Pennsylvania. My home. It was never my dream to run my aunt’s bed and breakfast, but it’s my reality. The only good thing about this time of year is that we shut down the bed and breakfast to celebrate our family’s Christmas. The town twinkles with the festive lights as the snow falls in a glistening blanket on the land. The cheer is in the air, and I find myself embracing the holiday spirit. Not even the stack of bills that keep piling up can ruin the joyful cheer. That is until I collide into Roan McDaniels in the local coffee shop. The searing liquid that spills down my arm, is nothing compared to the ache in my heart. He’s back in town. The man who broke my heart so many years ago and he looks good. Damn good. Little did I know I was in for a very unexpected gift.
